Los Portales Mexican Restaurant was founded in April of 2006 by Jose and Claudia Ursua. Jose and Claudia
over 24 years ago while working together at a Mexican restaurant, fell in love, and soon married. Both
and Claudia shared a dream of owning their own business, and after many years of hard work, dedication,
help from Claudia’s siblings, that dream came true. By combining their love of Mexican food and culture,
Los Portales Mexican Restaurant was born.
